What is this weed and how do I kill it?

Greeting everyone! I've had this patch of weeds growing in my backyard since we moved in a couple years ago. I've tried MSMA and at least two brand name over the counter items like Scott's Weed n Feed.

Nothing seems to faze it. I live in the DFW area. The employees at Calloways didn't know what it was and gave me some Sedge killer which I tried yesterday. Maybe it will work...

It doesn't grow very tall (its not cilantro or parsley). It does however have a very distinctive smell when the mower goes over it. Hard to describe, but I might call it bitter.

Hoping someone can tell me how to kill it.
